To get the idea for this sheep I played with a piece of wool, which resulted in the spiral idea. Also, it was inspired by sheep that I saw in New Zealand just before they were sheered and then after they were sheered. This represents the unsheered version.
It is made from two hand carved blocks, dark grey and pink.
The grey is sumi (Japanese ink) and the pink is gouache.
The print comes mounted in 8 x 10 conservation mat.
